Chelsea youngster Mason Mount made his England debut as he appeared off the bench in the Three Lions’ comfortable 4-0 victory over Bulgaria.

Mount was called to the England squad alongside Ross Barkley and has joined Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Tammy Abraham and Callum Hudson-Odoi in debuting for England in the last two years under the stewardship of Gareth Southgate.

With the scores at 3-0, Mount replaced Jordan Henderson midway through the second half, and played in the No.10 role.

Mount was a 67th minute substitute and not too long after, Barkley played a through ball which Kane latched on to before being felled as he went to shoot. The striker completed his hat-trick from 12 yards.

Prior to the game against Bulgaria, Mount has admitted that his family members could shed tears if he makes his national team bow, having made the Three Lions squad for their Euro 2020 qualifiers at home to Bulgaria on Saturday and Kosovo on Tuesday.

“You can’t really put into words how it will feel stepping out onto the pitch at Wembley and representing your country,” Mount said.

“It is such a massive feeling and hopefully, I will be able to experience that.

“It’s not only a massive moment for me, but also for my family and all the coaches that I’ve worked with to help get me to this point.

“My family, in particular, have been a massive part of my career. They come to every one of my games and I’m sure there will be a few proud tears from them if I get to make my debut.”
